Read the fascinating details of this story, and ask yourself why the media has shown little interest in following up and bringing them to you:

If you think the media has been doing its job in keeping us informed about terrorism-related evidence and events, you’re completely mistaken.

By the way, if you live anywhere near Jersey City, it’s up to you to demand some answers as to who has been telling the media to keep us in the dark about a vital matter such as this!
Since the news media and the governmental authorities aren’t properly keeping track of these incidents and informing us so that we can use this information to safeguard our families and communities, it looks as though we’ll have to start doing that ourselves.
I blogged about that quite recently; see Why we need a public-access database for tracking small-scale disasters and unusual events. I’m waiting for your suggestions!
Michelle Malkin’s article tells us that the SC pipe-bomb duo had, until recently, been using Web 2.0 social venues to network. How interesting! You can be sure that they aren’t the only ones taking advantage of the Web for that purpose. E-jihadists, and those who aid and abet them, are all over the web. So are courageous, diligent, and loyal citizens who are ferreting them out and reporting them.

This is where you come in! You, with your helpful eyes and ears, and with your cognitive abilities and your common sense to help you to connect the dots! Put those to work whenever you explore Web 2.0 social venues. If you see something, say something. Blog about it, comment about it, and notify the authorities. Also notify the owner of the web venue and everyone who should be aware. Above all, keep watching to make sure that appropriate action is taken!
